Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Updates: According to Paramount+, the next Star Trek: Strange New Worlds series is the brainchild of Paramount+ streaming partners Akiva Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet. When it premieres in 2022, it will be a part of Kurtzman’s enlarged Star Trek universe. Discovery spinoff and prequel Star Trek: The Original Series follows Captain Christopher Pike and his crew in Star Trek: Enterprise.
This season sees the return of Pike (Anson Mount), Number One (Rebecca Romijn), and Spock (Anthon Mount). First introduced in the original series, these actors will take on roles in Star Trek: Discovery’s original series characters in 2019.
In light of the enthusiastic response from fans, Kurtzman has shown an interest in rejoining the actors for a spin-off series. Work began in March of that year, when it was formally ordered in May of that year. The show’s founders and showrunners, Henry Alonso Myers and Goldsman, had previously been confirmed.
Additionally, Celia Rose Gooding, Melissa Navia and Bruce Horak are also included in the series. From February through October of 2021, much of the show was shot on location in New Mexico and at CBS Stages Canada in Mississauga, Ontario.
For the Release of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds?
After being in production for a number of years, “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” is currently nearing completion. There was a lot of excitement among “Star Trek: Discovery” viewers when the figure and his storied vessel first appeared in Season 2.
Showrunner Akiva Goldsman and current showrunner Alex Kurtzman were “tossing ideas back and forth” since 2020, when Kurtzman said that they were working on an entirely new show centred around Captain Pike, the original Star Trek (via Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).
With Kurtzman working as showrunner and Goldsman serving as a writer, CBS officially confirmed a Pike spin-off in May 2020. (via The Hollywood Reporter). “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” didn’t have an official release date until we spotted a promotional poster earlier this year.
‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ will premiere exclusively on Paramount+ on May 5, 2022. Paramount+ is CBS Viacom’s newly rebranded digital streaming service, and it is where the current-era ‘Star Trek’ programmes are available.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will return for a second season on Thursday, May 5. There will be new episodes every week on Thursdays after the first one.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Cast members have yet to be announced.
Anson Mount will reprise his role as Captain Pike in “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” where he initially appeared in “Star Trek: Discovery.” Other familiar faces, played by a wide spectrum of performers, will be on the opposite side of the screen, as will some unknowns, each with their own unique backstories.
As Spock, Ethan Peck reprises his role as a scientific officer who has not yet achieved the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Rebecca Romijn reprises her role as Pike’s first officer, Una Chin-Riley, in this season’s episode.
Another beloved character from “The Original Series” is Nyota Uhura, played by Celia Rose Gooding. In the casting announcement for “Strange New Worlds,” she is referred to as a cadet, just like Spock.
On the Enterprise, a nurse’s chapel from the original “Star Trek” series will be reprised by Jess Bush, who performed the role in the 1960s. Babs Olusanmokun will reprise his role as medical officer Dr. M’Benga, despite the fact that he only featured in two episodes of the previous series.
Several new characters have been introduced as well. As a Starfleet officer, Hemmer is an Aenar, a kind of alien with no eyes. One of the key characters in the film will be Bruce Horak, a visually handicapped actor (via Trekmovie).
Melissa Navia, who will portray Lieutenant Erica Ortegas, is another newcomer to the cast. There are few characters in this season of Star Trek more intriguing to Trekkies than La’an Noonien-Singh from Christina Chong’s portrayal of the role.
Khan Noonien-Singh, Captain Kirk’s most loathed antagonist in Star Trek: The Next Generation, goes by the last name of Noonien-Singh. Who knows what Akiva Goldsman is hiding from him, other than the fact that she is connected to him. The inquiry in “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” is probably guaranteed to find one of the most interesting mysteries.
